Summary
"After years on the trail of an internationally wanted terrorist, the CIA thinks Special Agent Holly Barker might need a long vacation. So Holly returns to her hometown of Orchid Beach, Florida, where she had been police chief for many years. With its sun-drenched beaches, crowded marinas, and luxurious oceanfront homes, it seems like the ideal coastal retreat. But a very unpleasant surprise awaits Holly: The police department now is entirely different from the one she commanded. An old danger Holly knows only too well has resurfaced, and her beloved hometown might not be the sanctuary she'd thought."--BOOK JACKET

The army officer in question was acquitted of all charges, and is now Orchid Beach's new police chief. Will Holly return to the CIA? Or will she challenge her old nemesis for control of the Orchid Beach Police Department?
